The ethics of Aristotle by Aristotle( Book )

3 editions published between 1953 and 2003 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Ethics of Aristotle is one half of a single treatise of which his Politics is the other half. Both deal with one and the same subject. This subject is what Aristotle calls in one place the 'philosophy of human affairs;' but more frequently Political or Social Science. In the two works taken together we have their author's whole theory of human conduct or practical activity, that is, of all human activity which is not directed merely to knowledge or truth. The two parts of this treatise are mutually complementary, but in a literary sense each is independent and self-contained

"When Plato was leaving Athens for the journey into Sicily, and which occupied him three years or more, Aristotle appeared in that busy city, then an active, restless youth of seventeen; rich both in money and in knowledge, eager, impetuous, truth-loving, and insatiable in his thirst for philosophy. During the three years of Plato's absence Aristotle was not idle. He prepared himself to be a worthy pupil. Plato returned. His school was opened, and Aristotle joined the crowd of his disciples, amongst whom the penetrating glance of the master soon detected the immortal pupil. Aristotle continued to listen to Plato for twenty years. But he did not confine himself to the Platonic philosophy; nor did he entirely agree with it. Wherein did Plato and Aristotle fundamentally differ? In truth, Aristotle radically opposed the Ideal theory; and the greater part of his criticisms on Plato are criticisms of that theory
